Rockman Unity Teases "Ver.Ke" Sigma Figure for April Fools' Day
It's April 1st in Japan and that means it's time for Rockman Unity's annual April Fools' Day post.
This year, to mark the end of the Heisei period, Ucchy-san takes us on a journey back through time, showing off various Rockman Unity April Fools' Day pranks from the period. Most of these pranks actually didn't happen, like the construction of a 226-foot-tall golden Rockman statue, multi-colored Ver.Ke X figures, and a soft vinyl Battle & Chase-style Roll figure, among other things.
All of these things sound super neat and would have made for fun products. However, what really whets the appetite is the product behind Ucchy's incorrect April Fools' Day 2018 recollection: a Rockman X 25th Anniversary Keisuke Mizuno (Ver.Ke) Sigma figure. Hot dang.
As you know, this wasn't the real 2018 April Fools' Day prank. But it is no doubt the centerpiece of this year's festivities. So the question is, can we expect Ver.Ke Sigma to actually become a real product? Don't forget: many past Rockman Unity April Fools' Day pranks ended up becoming legitimate figures. There was the D-Arts Ultimate Armor X in 2013, Ver.Ke X in 2014, Gigantic Series Roll in 2015, and the "Subaru Style" Shooting Star Rockman 4Inch-Nel variant in 2017. You might even own some of this figures.
As per usual, only time will tell. For now, do admire that fine artwork by Keisuke Mizuno.
